Mixed outlook

During Friday a band of wet weather pushes steadily eastwards and it becomes quite windy in the north. Heavy outbreaks of rain are likely in the west, but they become increasingly light and fragmented through the course of the day. Eastern counties possibly remain dry and quite warm.

Forecast confidence for the weekend is low. At this stage it looks as though Saturday could bring a few showers, but it should be mostly dry and bright.

Through Sunday a band of rain probably pushes across western and central areas. In the east it could stay dry and quite warm, although cloud amounts are likely to increase after a bright start.

Next week begins quite mixed with a risk of wet and windy conditions for a time. However, it probably turns more settled by Wednesday as high pressure builds.
